Hmm but if I remember correctly renting it one direction costs $$$ per mile
Both directions would be 2500 miles, I doubt the $99 a day thing covers 2500 miles.

Fuel cost would be $120ish per direction driving a sprinter + the rental fee(s).

Good idea but I think I would be outside the normal relm of a typical agreement.

Now lets do some homework to see.

Yep $0.50 a mile, my dodge crewcab is cheaper than that.

That's La to somewhere in Wisconsin. It's a lot further to Va. I think I'll pass but thanks for the thoughts. They should scrap any batteries.

Fires on car transport ships appear to be getting more common. But it's not the EVs...
I would bet my leaf that these fires are lithium battery related.
Guaranteed either the reason they start or the reason they can't be put out is because of lithium batteries.

I remember the user_removed story. Seven years already!

Forest fires and shipping vehicles. I wonder, is there any connection?

We're in this weird zone between the [re]introduction of electric vehicles and the perfection of solid state. fireproof batteries.

Is solid state less flammable?

The big problem as far as I can tell is the 20% volume expansion between the charged and discharged states. That presents some mechanical problems, I would think.

Less Fire, More Power: The Secret to Safer Lithium-Ion Batteries
Root and Branch: Crystalline lithium-metal structures grow out of the anode of a lithium-ion cell in a branching pattern, thus their name, dendrites (from the Greek dendron meaning "tree"). If they grow too long, they can short out the cell. Image: Brookhaven National Laboratory/Science Source

While the reason why Samsung Galaxy Note 7s have been catching fire has yet to be confirmed, the focus is on the device's lithium-ion batteries.

For those unfamiliar, dendrites are basically whiskers of lithium that grow inside batteries, and can cause the devices they're powering to ...
Apparently not.

First off, who still has a phone plan where they pay per text? Hilarious.

I just shipped a big block Chevy engine/v-drive combo on a 67x45 skid from the San Fransisco area to a guy in S. Carolina. He said he paid $500 for the shipping. It was a father/son team with a 30í flatbed behind a Ford F-350 pickup. They had a chiropractors bed and 2 crates of pool noodles when they got to my place. They just zig-zag across the country picking up and dropping off whatever wherever. Probably no insurance or license and iím guessing you shouldnít be in a hurry.

Iím about to have a boat (28í, 13k lbs on its own trailer) shipped from VT to California for $7k.

If you know anyone that does a lot of shipping, ask them to arrange and you pay them. The difference in price between a multi-repeat client and a one-off shipper is mind boggling.

Ah well
Ryan
Iím near San Francisco. Where is the seller located and where is the nearest depot?
